Jordanian business jet management and charter specialist Arab Wings has added a Citation Sovereign, Challenger 604, Challenger 605 and Learjet 60 to its fast-growing fleet.

Arab Wings announced at the show the four newly delivered business jets are now available for charter and expand its fleet to 14 aircraft. Arab Wings plans to use the 10-seat 604 and 12-seat Challenger 605 on charters from the Middle East to Europe. The nine-seat Sovereign will also be offered on flights from the Middle East and Europe.

The seven-seat Learjet 60 is expected to be used mainly on regional flights within the Middle East. All four aircraft were delivered new from the factory.

The four aircraft are part of an ambitious expansion plan at Arab Wings, which began operations in 1975 as a subsidiary of Royal Jordanian Airlines. It was privatised in 2005.

"Our market is advancing progressively and we will ensure the competitive edge through new services and unique offerings in Jordan and the Middle East," says Arab Wings executive vice-president Ahmad Abu Ghazaleh.

Other business jets in the Arab Wings fleet include the Gulfstream G450, Hawker 800XP and Cessna Citation. Ghazaleh also owns Sharjah-based business jet operator Gulf Wings and Bahrain-based Luxury Wings.
